General contractor: Swinerton
This $2.5 million tenant improvement project is full of unique aspects. The one that catches everyone’s attention is the heating and cooling systems that allow Northeastern University to hold its LEED status. The whole building has no AC units and instead uses operable windows on all floors and ceiling fans in all spaces. Heating is powered by wall heaters on each floor. The 12,000-square-foot space looks like a first-generation build. The design highlights aspects of the original building, with many open structures that required sound-soak panels to limit sound transfer from room to room. The dedication that Northeastern University has to its students is evident in this design. The space includes many areas that promote relaxation and free time, including lounges and gaming space.
